Hi, can anyone offer advice on how to kick off a workflow process when using a SQL database for data, I am very familiar with this when using a csv, xml, etc. but haven't got a clue on how to with a database.

Jehsse1,

There a couple of ways you can do this.
1- Start your process with a create file as first step, second step is the PlanetPress Database plug-in, this way you can setup your process by going into the propiertys of the Process (Right click on the process name and go to properties), here you can set the time when you wnat the process to start, example: once every hours, once a day etc etc.
2- Start your process with a folder capture, second step is the PlanetPress Database plug in... like this you can start your process only when your drop a file into the input.
